Hybrid MEMS Proportional Fluid Control Valve

July 27, 2016

MEMS scale piezoelectric materials to create ultra-efficient miniature proportional pneumatic valves have been studied by CCEFP researchers for a number of years now, but the manufacturing challenges to overcome have proven to be quite daunting. The purpose of this project is to accelerate the commercialization potential of this innovative approach…

Researcher Profile

As an undergraduate student, Nathan attended the University of Rochester and majored in mechanical engineering. While there, he was active in a few student-led groups and a mechanical engineering research group. In this research group, under the advisement of Dr. Jong-Hoon Nam, he worked on developing new experimental methods for determining the mechanical properties of cochlear tissue. After graduating from the University of Rochester, Nathan was accepted into the mechanical engineering PhD program at the University of Minnesota.
